How to refill the HP 60 black ink cartridge

The HP 60 black cartridge works with pigmented inks, which is why it yields up to 220 pages with laser printing quality. Even after refilling it, this cartridge will still print up to 150 pages, but only if you use pigmented ink when doing it. To learn more about this type of ink, please visit the following post.

We could even state that a new generation of HP cartridges began after this one came out, since the new ones print fewer pages than the older HP cartridge models.

This is why we shouldn’t be surprised by the fact that our ink cartridges print fewer pages than the traditional ones, the HP 60 black cartridge is compatible with the following printer models:

HP deskjet D1660, D2530, D2545, D2560, D2660, D2680, D5545 and D5560. when refilling this cartridge, we recommend you only inject 5ml of ink into it. This amount surpases the original factory amount, but it won’t cause any problems.

Instructions for refilling the HP 60 black ink cartridge:

Before we start, we recommend you clean the contacts on this cartridge. While this is necessary, it’s not really mandatory since these cartridges have very high performance as it is.

However, if you haven’t used them, in a long time, there may be some dried ink on the print heads, and that’s never good. Please read the following post to learn how to clean the print heads on your ink cartridges.

After you’ve done the cleaning process which, again, is not mandatory and you can choose to avoid it completely, you can continue with the refilling procedure.

Step #1:
First, put the cartridge on top of any material that can take an ink spill or two. We don’t recommend you use any white fabric since you won’t be able to remove the ink from it, but you could use any black material, even a flat surface that you can clean ink from.

Step #2:
The, remove the label that carries the cartridge number, located at the very top of it. We recommend you always remove this label before refilling the cartridge.

This label is responsible for letting the necessary amount of air into the cartridge that will help it reach the highest performance and printing quality. Take this label off very slowly to avoid harming it.

Step #3:
Now inject the 5ml of ink as slowly as possible. We need you to add the ink very slowly to help spread the ink inside the cartridge, so it soaks the sponge that’s in it. Please take a look at the following image, and remember to take all the air out from the syringe.

Now that you’ve refilled the ink cartridge, all you need to do now is print a test sheet with it. We recommend you leave the cartridge inside the printer from now on.
